Kitchen Trends for 2020
Your kitchen is probably the most important room in your home. It's the room we all gravitate towards and spend most of our time as a family in, so we want it to look good, right?
If you are looking to design or update your kitchen and don't want it to go out of style in a year or two there are plenty of looks to choose from.
Here are 5 kitchen trends for 2020 to help you create a stylish yet innovative kitchen.
Kitchen lighting in 2020 will be used to accentuate the design of the room. Pendant lighting over kitchen islands that match the handles on the cabinets and seamless lighting integrated with kitchen cabinets will be particularly popular. People are going bolder and more creative with their lighting and bulb choices.
2. Gold Finishes
The colour and style of the small finishes in a room can have a strong impact on the overall look and feel. For a kitchen, these finishes usually include handles, taps, pots and pans, and electrical appliances like the kettle and the toaster. For 2020, the colour and metal of choice will be gold. Gold brings an element of richness and warmth to a room that a lot of other metals can’t accomplish. You can go for a traditional gold finish or use brushed gold which has become a popular choice.
3. Go Dark
I'm a big fan of darker hues being used in interiors recently and Black will be a popular kitchen trend for 2020. It goes really well with white and gold accents and dark woods. Black and dark kitchens work best in large spaces with a lot of light, dark smaller kitchens often appear cramped and closed off. For smaller rooms, the dark kitchen trend works best if it is used with a lighter colour to break it up.
4. Minimalist Handles
Minimalist handles or handless presses will be hugely popular for contemporary kitchens in 2020. While push-open handles have been made increasingly easy to use, they aren’t for everyone, so you can get the handless look by having longer cabinet doors and with sunken handles.
5. Pop of Colour
Neutral kitchens that incorporate a pop of colour are all the rage for 2020. It’s important to be committed to the colour you choose before you design your kitchen, because you may have a change of heart in a couple of years, or even months. For longer commitments, colourful cabinets, tiles and chairs will brighten up your room, but for shorter commitments sticking with paints and kitchen accessories that you can easily change, will leave room for quicker changes.
You could accessorise with Classic Blue which is Pantone's Colour of the Year for 2020.
